Description

After their husbands are deployed to Afghanistan, the wives—led by the starchy and rather snobbish Kate (Kristin Scott Thomas)—at a military base in England decide to start a choir to build morale. Enlisting the aid of the more down-to-earth Lisa (Sharon Horgan), Kate quickly builds a troupe—but problems immediately arise as to the repertoire: should it be classical or pop…? Based on a true story, Peter Cattaneo’s (The Full Monty) comedic drama is a crowd-pleaser of the highest order. And any time we get to see the amazing—and increasingly reclusive—Scott Thomas on the big screen, we have to cheer!

‘There’s a slick, comforting charm underpinning scrappy comedy drama Military Wives [the original title]... It’s no real surprise when one takes a glance at the credits since director Peter Cattaneo’s 1997 hit The Full Monty virtually provided the blueprint… There’s something irresistible about the formula and Cattaneo, along with writers Rosanne Flynn and Rachel Tunnard, knows how to play his audience like an instrument… There’s a simple yet undeniable pleasure to be had following the wives on their road to success.’—Benjamin Lee, Guardian
